The Art of Quilling

I've recently been very drawn to paper art, and this project pretty much takes the cake.  Artist Lisa Nilsson uses rolled pieces of Japanese mulberry paper to create anatomical cross sections, a technique called quilling or paper filigree.  You can't see in the photos, but she houses all her intricate designs in beautiful silk covered wooden boxes she makes herself.  For more about Lisa's project, read her interview with ArtSake.
